Veterans Build

Empowering military veterans through home ownership, home repairs and camaraderie building events.

At Will County Habitat for Humanity, we believe that every veteran family deserves a decent place to call home. Our Veterans Build Program works to empower veterans through home ownership opportunities, critical home repairs and camaraderie building events.

Will County Habitat is actively addressing the lack of affordable housing by partnering with military service members, their families, and veterans to help build and repair affordable housing. Will County Habitat’s hand-up not a hand-out approach asks partner families to invest sweat-equity hours to build their home and volunteer with us.

Home Ownership

We believe every veteran deserves to be welcomed home with dignity, honor, and respect. We are looking to partner with veterans and their families to build a new safe, stable, and affordable home.

Home Repair

Will County’s Home Repair program partners with veteran homeowners to repair their homes in need of critical repairs, modifications,  that may be too costly or physically challenging.
